  • The Regions of Kalmar County and Kronoberg have collaborated with private and public stakeholders in the building sector to unleash and develop innovative ideas for circular solutions.
  • As part of its circular economy strategy, Lille Métropole has collaborated with La Meta, an economic interest group of social housing companies dedicated to the re-construction of vulnerable districts.

Josefina Lindblom from the European Commission (Directorate-General for the Environment) will kick off the webinar with an update on the EU initiatives. There will also be a discussion on challenges and what still needs to be done at EU, regional and local level.
